NIGERIAN TENOR SINGER NOMINATED FOR GLOBAL OPERA MUSIC AWARD.

MR TENOR, JOSEPH OPARAMANUIKE –  SETTING A PACE FOR THE UPCOMING.
In the world of Opera Music, Nigeria is not regarded as a heavyweight, compared to the likes of Germany, Austria, Italy and England to mention but a few.
This is because the genre of Music though elitist, is alien to the Nigerian society who value more of the groovy pop music currently in vogue. Suffice it to say that the Nigerian people wouldn’t have known what Opera Music is, if not for Colonial Influence.

My recent visit to Europe showed that the world does not even know that Nigeria practices or performs Opera Music. Many of them did not believe the claim, until they listened to us perform, of course they left the auditorium stunned at the Nigerians whom they only knew for Football, Pop Music and probably Nollywood Movies. Now, that’s rebranding Nigeria through Opera Music, if you ask me.

All that is changing now, as the world is beginning to see Nigerian Opera (If only we had one or two Opera houses to show) through Nigeria’s Export, Joseph Oparamanuike, Nigeria’s Best Tenor Singer and most trained Opera Singer of all time. It would interest you to know that Joseph has been nominated for the PARIS OPERA AWARDS, slated to hold in Paris, France, later this year.

Having dumped a Bachelors Degree in Chemical Engineering from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, for a greater calling in Opera Music, Joseph Oparamanuike studied Master of Music Opera (MMus Opera) at the Alexander Gibson Opera School (AGOS), Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS), under the tutelage of Scott Johnson. He also holds a Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) in Singing. All his music education in Scotland was supported by RCS Trust Fund Scholarship. He holds Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music (LRSM) in Singing and Diploma of Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music (DipABRSM) in Vocal Teaching.

One can only hope that Joseph Oparamanuike wins this Award and writes his name in the history books.
